Missouri University of Science and Technology will offer new distance education programs in environmental engineering and business administration (MBA) in 2009.
The graduate degree program in environmental engineering requires 30 credit hours of approved coursework and focuses on the challenges of sustainability, carbon emissions and limited water supply. Protecting human health and minimizing human impact on the local, regional and global environment is the foundation of the degree.
The graduate degree program in business administration is offered in three parts: an 18-credit-hour management core; a six-credit-hour internship, practicum or research project; and a 12-credit-hour specialization or elective area. The internship, practicum or research project follows completion of the core classes. Students can choose from marketing, enterprise resource planning, human computer interaction, supply chain management, project management and information technology management for specialization or electives.
Courses are taught via streaming video, WebEx and interactive communication. WebEx and similar systems permit professors and students to interact with each other at any time, so students will have direct real-time access to professors and other students. Courses are archived for later access and review.
“Students know that our programs reflect the commitment to academic quality Missouri S&T is known for,” says Henry Wiebe, vice provost of global learning. “We provide that education in an environment that is convenient and accessible. It’s education that fits.”
Registration for the spring semester at Missouri S&T ends Jan. 5, 2009.
